I wore it on my wedding day in September and it was gorgeous. There is no damage to the dress and the bustle is still perfect. The gown was never altered before I wore it. The wedding was indoors so the dress is in excellent condition, but may need light cleaning around the bottom. I will include the petticoat I purchased for the dress to push out the skirt for the full effect. The petticoat also enhances the look of the pick-ups in the skirt. The dress is a size 14, but wedding dresses run bigger in size. I normally wear a size 10 to 12. We have no room or desire to store the dress and I am excited to share it with someone one else for their lucky day. I have included some pictures of the dress from my wedding day, including one of the bottom so you can see how it flows. Please contact me if you have questions or need more information.
